Antiblock Additive Market

Acquisitions, and Contracts & Agreements were the Key Strategies Adopted by the Leading Players in the global Antiblock Additive Market

Antiblock additives are added to polymer matrix to counter the effects of blocking. These additives create roughness by protruding microscopically from a film’s surface, thereby reducing adhesion by separating the interlocked micro-particles in the film. The global size of the antiblock additive market is projected to grow from USD 839.3 Million in 2016 to USD 1,109.6 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2021. The global focus on increasing agricultural output, along with advancements in technology and packaging materials is driving the antiblock additive market.
